2011 was cathartic for me. Going back to back in 2015 made me as happy as Test rugby could. If we do the three-peat in 2019, I'd suggest the RWC could be irrevocably damaged.
Let it burn
My next door neighbour has just been diagnosed with COVID-19 and rushed to hospital.
He's been put on one of the new Dyson ventilators.
He's picking up nicely now.
Oh Man! I was typing a reply saying that is a good news story and then realised the thread I was in.
You almost got sucked right in..... I'll get my coat
Seriously, though, we talked about this with Henry as well. They will put systems in place to generate the players with attributes they need. Hansen's just done this wtih props - get mobile, or get gone. Simple.
It's about systems. We don't have any of note.
MacQueen and his team came together at just the right time and it took more than a year to get them pointed in the same direction
Was McKenzie on track before he fiddled and got caught?
Hard to say. From all reports, he had his favorites and would stick with them regardless.
Maybe his attitude was better (or better expressed) than Cheika. But look at that tweet from Quade - does that look like the culture was of a high standard when that guy is your first choice?
Genia's got an attitude problem as well. Many in Australia will refuse to countenance that.
While the Reds were winning, nobody cared
Some of the bad eggs, like Genia, are gone now anyway. You guys need new up and comers and someone to change the culture. Wait, I have just the man
A lot of fathers here, just imagine your little girl brings home her new boyfriend to show you. In walks that fat fuck, do you reach for the machete you have stashed in the shed or run next door to grab your neighbours .22 ?
I think you'll need a .303
Should have just glassed his girlfriend or shat in a hallway, pissed in his own mouth or maybe some sort of gang sexcapade like those much better role models out there.
In other words a typical Saturdee night when Craig Gower was playing
Foolah didn't mention bestiality. So Mitchell Pearce is in the clear right?
@Jaguares4real said in 2019 Rugby Championship:
@nzzp yeah unfortunately we have lost many of our 'international' posters over the years, for a variety of reasons
i, for one, blame the cantabs.
That why I'm expecting every Kiwi rugby fan on this forum who doesn't support Canterbury to be supporting the Jaguares tomorrow night
The truth of these times is that no public person will go on record answering this question: " what is a woman?
That's because it is a really stupid question that aims solely to wind up people's emotions about others, provide ammo to attack the person that answers the question, and succeeds.
The question 'what is a man?' is equally as stupid
Are either a relevant question?
Who, exactly, has made it ammo to attack? What's so difficult about answering it? Whose version of the answer?
Why can't Cindy answer that honestly to the electorate?
Let the electorate decide. Lets find out definitively what NZers really think about identity politics, then fair dues to the winner. A mandate to proceed. This is now a vital election, let's know about the person at the helm of a lilting ship.
Or should we censor the question lest the answer be analysed by voters?
What is a human? Equally stupid?
What's your answer to what is a woman?
Mine involves chromosomes, reproductive capabilities and immutable characteristics.
What does it matter?
Funny how people get their knickers in a twist about this. I would give the question the treatment it deserves, and ignore it. I'm not sure the majority of the electorate think about let alone have any sort of strong opinion about identity politics. It's just that those on telly and in the media give more of a shit about it than the rest of us put together
Does that mean if the team isn't performing, the coach shouldn't be sacked? Why would you sack a coach for poor results if 99% of their job is man management?
I think his job should be on the line, but not because of results, but because of poor process.
Little to no prep for Perth, and what he did get he wasted (playing two debutantes in two test matches). Selections all over the place (particularly Tim Southee). Basically, I get the impression Stead's a little out of his depth.
That said, results don't help, and that tour of Australia was humiliating. Australia were very very good, and we played them a year too late, but we got absolutely spanked. Their was a gap between their batsmen and our bowlers, and vice versa.
We were much better at home vs India, the 20/20s not withstanding.
I'm not defending him by the way; if he can't work with Kane and provide him with the guidance he seeks, then he has to go
@Hooroo easy as mate. A little bit of prep to dry the skin a few hours before, then 90 minutes in the smoker
Being honest is good. Being anti-abortion is polarising. Given the law has changed, it shouldn't cost many votes as long as there are no plans to revisit.
I don't recall him saying that if he got into power it would be an issue his party would pursue. He said it but didn't exactly go Izzy Folau about it. And the media didn't even blink in the wake of his interview
She's in great nick. I've been at pains to figure out if the rack is natural but I'm leaning towards not so much.
I have to disagree. She is quite a buxom girl, someone with a caboose like that could easily support a rack like that
The from behind shots don't make it easy either
I can't remember where the article was but Cindy thinks a four day working week is something to consider. Spoken like someone whose closest thing to a real private sector job was her after school stint with the Morrinsville fish and chip shop
She's hardly developing a new theory there, but it's one which I'm in agreeance. I've long been irritated by the concept of presenteeism.
The last time I was in the financial sector my work hours varied considerably with the benefit that unless I had to be in front of a client, I could work from anywhere. Only problem was the 60-80 hour weeks...
It depends what sector you are in, and what the KPIs are. Obviously retail has to focus on hours worked, if your work is project based, I suppose it is okay to leave early/ come and go as you please as long as the work is done
Roast duck in the akorn tonight. Crispy, juicy, and delicious
If the article is mostly accurate it suggests Muller is a very savvy operator in the background but is also a guy who can connect with people, who was able to convince his fellow caucus members to come over to his side with no bloodshed whatsoever. Keeping Goldsmith on, knowing he is a Bridges supporter sends a strong message that he doesn't need yes men and values high character people. His message appears to be on point right now, and if Mrs CF is in anyway representative of many Nats voters, she is happy that Simon is gone and likes the inclusion of Kaye
